Weekly Goals and To-Do Tuesday #94

I’ll be linking up with To-Do Tuesday which is being hosted by Linda from Texas Quilt Gal. Every week I find myself looking forward to seeing what everyone else is working on or have finished.

Last To-Do list:

1. Continue with my scrappy leader/ender project. Some Progress

2. Keep sewing my pieces for my EPP projects. I have started piecing the little bits together for some blocks; just playing for now! 😄

3. Keep up with the new prompt for the SAHRR. Signature Block is done!

4. Finish cleaning up my scrap bin and getting everything cut up and put in my scrap savers bins.

5. Write my pattern for “Boxed” since I have had several requests for it. Quilt math is so hard 😳

6. See if I can come up with an idea for the next PQ Challenge when it comes out on the 13th.

7. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿 I did volunteer to do another pattern test at Sam’s insistence. 😂

This week’s goals:

1. Continue with my scrappy leader/ender project.

2. Keep working on my EPP projects.

3. Keep up with the new prompt for the SAHRR.

4. Finish cleaning up my scrap bin and getting everything cut up and put in my scrap savers bins

5. Write my pattern for “Boxed” since I have had several requests for it.

7. Do not let Sam or any other squirrels distract me this week. 🐿

To update you all, my great grandchildren have recovered from Covid except for a lingering cough. My granddaughter is still waiting for her medical appointments to be set up. The hospitals in Alberta are still overwhelmed with Covid patients so it might take a while longer for any answers. K’s surgery went well. They did the biopsies and drained another litre of fluid from his lungs. He should be home in another day or two, but nurses will be attending him at home every 3 days to drain his lungs. Thank you to all of you for your prayers, well wishes and kind words.

Stitchin’ Time

Kate from Kates Life in Pieces hosts a weekly linky party to help us keep to our goals of stitching every day.

I’m trying for at least 30 minutes a day this year, but also want to at least spend 30 minutes a week tidying up and dealing with scraps.

  • January 31/31
  • this week 7/7
  • This month 13/13
  • Total: 44/44
  • Percentage =100%

To see how our blogging friends are doing check out Kate’s blog: Life in Pieces

Stash Report:

I like to link with Donna @ Quilt Paint Create to keep track of fabric in and out of my stash.

  • Fabric previous balance: 89 Yards
  • Fabric Used: 0 yards
  • Fabric Bought: 0 yards
  • Balance in stash to use this year: 89 Yards

* my goal is to lessen my stash by 100 yards this year. I haven’t managed to actually figure out how much fabric I really have in my stash so it just seems to be reasonable to set a goal to continue working from my stash.

* any fabric used from the scrap bins, was gifted or a prize; doesn’t count as stash

Quilting Gail is hosting her PHD in 2022 Challenge again this year. 😄

I do enjoy sharing some of your time when you read my posts and reply to each comment. 😄 Carol

Published by Carol Andrews

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! I’m braced. I can take them – bring ’em on. Quilt math IS hard as is writing a pattern. You can’t be too wordy but you can’t leave anything out either. AHA! I just KNEW that Sam would get you. He is persistent that way. YIPPEE to recovering and to having the surgery behind him. Phew. I’m still continuing the prayers, though. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Quilt math is hard, especially when you are working from a photo of the quilt. It was donated to Victoria’s Quilts Canada as part of my H2H donation one year. Samantha is a pain but she keeps me busy. Recovery and healing is good, but prayers from friends continue to be welcome and appreciated. 🤗

  2. Hi Roseanne. It’s especially hard because I’m trying to work from a photo of the quilt. It went to Victoria’s Quilts Canada as part of my donations a couple of years ago. I can’t just measure the pieces, blocks or borders. 😳 Healing and recovery is good, but the prayers of friends sure helps. 🤗


  3. Love the colors in your EPP project and your version of the SAHRR is looking great. Fingers crossed everyone is heading towards healthy and happy. Sounds like it has been a rough few weeks for your family. Happy stitching this week, good luck with all your plans for the week.

  4. Your EPP projects are gorgeous, beautiful little hexies! SAHRR is going well,great new border. So happy that the family health issues are nearly ending, or at least getting better. Sewing and quilting are such zen activities, we need them. Hugs

  5. Love the colors in your EPP. The SAHRR piece looks beautiful! I agree, quilt math is hard. I can’t imagine trying to create a pattern.
    I’m glad your great-grands are recovering and will continue to pray for your granddaughter and for K. Glad he is able to come home.
    I’m late in commenting, but thank you for linking up with To Do Tuesday!
